Music sets a mood. A tone. Evokes emotion. A melody carries us elsewhere. Lyrics speak our mind and heart.
While I don’t often listen to music while writing, I do listen and let it inspire me when I’m not at the computer. Some of my best scenes have come to me while listening to a song. When writing a book—before, during, and after—I create a Spotify playlist for the book. My taste is eclectic. Maybe your’s is too? If so, take a listen. Maybe you’ll recognize the themes of my novels in the melodies and lyrics you hear.
